ready to fly

wasps-bees-mosquitos

I finished this one just now.
It is for an article on Summer alergies caused by mosquitos' bites, bees and wasps' stings.

This is the sketch, I always visualize everything inside my head so I do chaotic sketches that sometimes only I understand...

Vai ser lançada o Segundo número da revista “All-Girlzine”, que tem a particularidade de ser integralmente preenchida com trabalhos de autoras nacionais, para "mostrar que, embora faltem produções, não faltam artistas femininas na área, nem são as suas propostas desprovidas de mérito", explica o autor de bd, Daniel Maia, responsável do projecto. Serve este lançamento como pretexto para uma exposição inserida na Feira Laica. + info: www.danielmaia.com/allgirlz.htm

A Feira é das 15h à meia noite.Não se desculpem com a praia nem com o Futebol e venham apoiar a oitava (ilustração) e especialmente a nona Arte (bd).

A primeira a atravessar um momento de crise a segunda sempre em crise hehehehe.

Além do mais há peixinhos da Horta e pataniscas de Bacalhau!;)

CLEAR WATER

Creativity is a shapechanger.

One moment it takes this form, the next that.

It is like a dazzling spirit who appears to us all, yet is hard to describe for no one agrees on what they saw in that brilliant flash.

crow

Some say the creative life is in ideas, some say it is in doing.

It seems in most instances to be a simple being.

It is not virtuosity, although that is very fine in itself.

It is the love of something, having so much love for something whether person, a word, an image, an idea, the land, or humanity that all that can be done with the overflow is to create.

It is not a matter of wanting to, not a singular act of will;

One solely must.

indie-carpott

Creativity is not a solitary movement. That is its power.

Whatever is touched by it, whoever hears it, sees it, senses it, knows it, is fed.

That is why beholding someone else’s creative word, image, idea, fills us up,inspires us to our own creative work.

A single creative act has the potential to feed a continent.

One creative act can cause a torrent to break through stone.

It was for mother's day.

For the ones who don't know;
Terra do Nunca
(means NeverNeverLand) is a children's magazine coming inside another magazine which comes every Sunday with two portuguese newspapers.
This sounds a bit like a matrioshka (nesting dolls)... he he he he ;)
